bonhomie \bah-nuh-MEE\ noun
: good-natured easy friendliness
Looking at this CanSpell word of the day my first thought was “I don’t know this word”. Then I thought “Hmnn. Good natured, easy friendliness”. Children have lots of bonhomie to spare, but their adult contemporaries are not as well endowed in this regard. Our ability to show bonhomie to others is hit and miss.
In these lean economic times we need lots of bonhomie to sweeten the deal. The children in our lives can show us the way.
